Some transfers and care tasks also require lifting the upper body of the bedbound patient/resident.
These tasks can include:
- Putting an X-ray cassette under the patient
- Washing their hair in bed
- Raising them higher up in bed
Physically weak patients might struggle to raise their upper body, and may therefore need help.
In such instances, the job can be made easier by using a Guldmann Multi Support sling.
